As several other users have posted, my wife's computer seems to have become prey for the "google redirect" virus. After searching with google or bing when an entry is clicked a redirecting message is displayed for a very short time and a advertising website is accessed instead of the intended url. Also, I noticed when running the task manager that many svchost.exe processes are running. The more you experiment with the search engine (stupid) the more processes are created until no processing time remains. I.e 100% system utilization. Does anyone know how to get rid of this virus. Please help! Thanks
